Colin Killalea has toured and performed with an array of artists, most recently Albert Hammond Jr and Natalie Prass. Noisey magazine calls him “a ridiculously dexterous multi-instrumentalist.” He earned a BA at New School University’s jazz studies program, focusing to a large extent on saxophone and composition. Teachers include Robert Sadin, Jane Ira Bloom, John D’earth, and the great Billy Hart. As a singer, Colin’s been featured on many albums and live performances, notably visual artist Adam Pendelton’s “Three Scenes” at the Gardner Museum in Boston, Massachusetts. Killalea lives in central Virginia and works chiefly as a producer/engineer out of local recording studio White Star Sound. Recent projects released and forthcoming include Diane Cluck, Schuyler Fisk, Juliana Daugherty, Goodnight Daniel, Albert Hammond Jr, Ex-poets, Klauss, and the multimedia collaboration “Preservation” with Tracy Maurice and Tommy Crane. The piece recently debuted at the David Rubinstein Atrium at Lincoln Center in New York City.
